I found this on www.lancearmstrong.com

2/15 ~ HOT! Let the speculation begin! We're finally allowed to let you know the first official word from Shimano on their next generation road group.

Dura Ace®, will be completely renewed. The new 10-speed system has been developed under the concept of Speed, Smooth and Strength and this will be reflected in the product with its super-light weight, high durability and high efficiency. There will be no need to modify frame dimensions to accommodate New Dura Ace®.

Word is already out some time. Some pro's have already been spotted test riding the 10 speed version last year.

Are you sure?!

Any news or rumours i read about the new Dura-Ace told it was supposed to be an 11 speed version...

I haven't seen any (real/official) news about it being a 10 speed ..

I can only remember reading about 11 speed also, never 10

Michael Boogerd tested it in 2002 he wasn't confident about the performance then.
Look for the pictures of sportsmen of the year of Lance armstrong to have a peak at what it is. Look for new shifter design.
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/features/2002/sportsman/lance/covers/coverlarge.html the cover if you know where to look you can see it. Anyone can scan al the sport illustrated pics?

For the moment Rabobank rider Marc Wauters is test riding it. He was on holiday in Egypt and when he heard there was an attempt to break in to his house he was terrified because of the almost pricless Colnago in his basement. Well bike wasn't stolen, he has been spotted with the new shimano gear in the Calpe area in spain while on the Rabobank training camp.
